The Side-Out Ambassador Program
Beginning October 1st, students can submit materials for their 2015 Side-Out Ambassador Program application. For those students applying for a scholarship, the educational hours make up a key part of the application. As ambassadors, you share your knowledge about breast cancer and about the trial you support through The Side-Out Foundation, the Side-Out Protocol. It is important that you focus on truly learning about the disease.
The best way to get these hours is through direct interaction with medical professionals:
- Volunteering at a local hospital or patient support organization
- Visiting a breast cancer research lab
- Interviewing a local oncology nurse and/or physician
For some students, however, that is not always an option. In that situation, we recommend finding a breast cancer webinar. CancerCare is an exceptional resource, and they offer lots of webinars throughout the year. Some other organizations offering online breast cancer workshops or podcasts include:
We understand you will not have a contact at the organization or a signature for the Educational Hours Form, and that is OK. As long as you demonstrate in your essay that you completed the hours and learned from the experience, you will receive credit.
